Seth's 1st Birthday cake

Seth's Mum wanted to show her little angel off! - so here he is sat at the foot of a rainbow - a true little pot of gold!

 

The cake ideas were Seth's Mum's, but the cake was truly bought to life by a few little insipirations from wonderful sugar artists here on flickr .....

 

I must ask Chris to take a bow! ... her delightful cake topper

reminded me that numbers can be bright and cheerful! (my number 1 is pretending to be the sun!). My number was cut free hand - I think it came out rather well!

 

Next up is the wonderful Andrea, her patchwork cakes are awesome, but these simple, yet effective clouds were heavily inspired by one of her most recent Toy Story cakes!

 

And last, but by no means least, I thank, AGAIN! the wonderful Lorraine .... for the inspiration of these wonderful faces! ....... If you want to make faces like this you simply HAVE to buy Lorraine's tutorial on making heads!

'heads up tutorial' it's the best money I ever spent! ...

 

The cake is a 7 inch rich chocolate cake with chocolate fudge filling.

The cake is mounted off centre on a 10 inch board.

All modelling is free hand in fondant with added CMC.

All colours used are sugarflair.

 

I'm playing with a watermark since I have had yet more cake photos stolen this week and pased off as someone elses work.

This isn't the best watermark in the world, but then I'm not the most photo savvy person!!.
